Teaching/Classroom Observations

Use our Observation Request Form to request a teaching observation!

The CTL provides teaching observations for those who teach courses at the University of Georgia, as a way to provide feedback on your teaching in the context of consultation and professional development with a teaching and learning expert.

There are three phases to a CTL Teaching Observation:

  1. Pre-Observation Meeting: Meet with your CTL consultant for 30 minutes to discuss your class, your teaching, and the feedback you would find most useful.
  2. Observation: Teach your class as usual, but with your CTL consultant in the room (or with you online), taking note of everything going on and using established teaching observation protocols to gather data.
  3. Post-Observation Meeting: Meet with your CTL consultant for 30-60 minutes, 1-7 days after their visit, to discuss their observations, feedback, and recommendations for your teaching and your class.

Questions? Contact Kelly Ford (kfarm@uga.edu) if you are a graduate student, and Ameya Sawadkar (ameya.sawadkar@uga.edu) if you are not.
